Welcome Aboard

Each year, we mentor 1700 young people from all walks of life as they learn to sail a tall ship with SALTS! We provide "training, by the sea, for life!"

School or youth groups participate in four or five-day voyages to the Gulf Islands each spring and fall. Individual young people join in ten-day summer voyages along the east or west coast of Vancouver Island. Every few years, an offshore
voyage is launched to destinations such as the South Pacific, Far East, Australia, or Europe.


Bursaries are provided for those who cannot afford the full program cost. We partner with numerous other community organizations to provide bursaries to young people from challenging life situations (cognitive disabilities, at-risk, cancer recovery, recent immigrants, etc). People of all ages can participate in Day Sails by registering online. Our mission is to develop the spiritual, relational, and physical potential of young people through sail training, shipboard life, and associated activities in a Christian environment.
